After Simple life, the second left hand continues to explore his harmonies under the nfluence of Air, Four tet or Rone.
Introduction to the album, under the influence of M83 in the traitement of voice, the origianl track i've prepared was very close to M83 but the rythm i found just didn't fit, so i made this version, analog refers to the fact that my music is analog to music of other bands like four tet or rone for example, but it refers also to the analogic, i try to make a track that sounds like analogic instruments.
2 Spotless mind
i imagine someone very naive dancing on this track. And the first track i've published was Eternal sunshine (JO deldo et Obeno), and eternal sunshine of the spotless mind is a movie i love.
3 The half open sky gives us light
the title comes from a paint of miro, "The half open sky gives us hope", the track could be in a movie, the original track i worked, was close to jori hulkkonnen and finally it's close to Rone.
4 Marvelous day
I'm satisfied of the harmony in the voices i found.
5 Thieves ike angels
under the influence of four tet, the thieves refers to me when i do music and angels refers to the voice of the track that are heavenly, besides i used to be a fan of New Order and their track "thieves like us"and i like the band thieves like us.
the harmony are typcal of what i use to do before, but it's darker and the ryhm is worked differently, the title refers to me when i imagine how different my life could be, if i made different choices.
this track is about me and the contact dance that i'm starting to practice. Originally i wanted a chinese that spokes at first and eventually yells but i havent find it (this idea comes to me during a choregraphy of Yoann Bourgeois on China), so i made the voice that is very recognosable.
8 Eternal back
This track is close to the music i use to do under the name of Obeno, and the first track i've published was Eternal sunshine (JO deldo et Obeno), so this music is an eternal back, and at the end of the track it could restart over and over (the first version was 9 minutes long)
9 If we were young
It's close to air, the virgin suicide album, so it refers to when i was young.
10 Love at 2nd sight
this track is close to Rone, the title refers to the fact that The second left hand is my second name after Obeno, and i want you to fall in love with my music. If it works it would be a love at 2nd sight.
I had Kavinsky nightcall in mind, so Nightmare fits, cause it's dark
Just breathe (telepopmusic)
Bonus track on bandcamp
Love at 2nd sight (live original version)
Original version of love at 2nd sight, that a lot of people like so i put it...
